CARLO SCARPA ENVD 1004 March 9, 2010 Pamilsist- is a manuscript page from a scroll or book that has been scraped off and used again. The word "palimpsest" comes through Latin from Greek meant scraped again and again. - Really mixing old with new in architecture - Architects imply palimpsest as a ghost- an image of what once was. o This occurs more than we think like whenever spaces are shuffled rebuilt or remodeled shadows remain. Tarred rooflines remain on the sides ofa building long after the neighboring structure has been demolished, removed stairs leave a mark where the painted wall surface stopped. Dust lines remain form a relocated appliance. o Can inform us archaeologically of the realities Carlo Scarpa - Born in Venice and attended Academy of Fine Arts - However he never took the Pro Forma exam so never an architect so most would call him Professor and he had to associate with an architect in every project.
